This is what I come up with In Sketchup For a design for a home DIY drill press.
It is designed to take a heavy Duty Electric Drill. It will work on a rack and pinion system and heavy duty draw roller bearing rails. It will also have a built in LED light and a drill depth guide on the side see pics. Most of this will be made from hard woods as will the rack and pinion. I would make the rack and pinion from metal if I had the machine to make it. This will be a build I do this year when I can fit it in...
